For nearly 50 years, Bruce Springsteen has been an icon within the music industry. With his working class tales that relate to the everyday lives of many, and his ability to stand the test of time and remain relevant has given him a culturally significant standing. The impact of ‘The Boss’ can never be understated. From arena-made anthems such as Born In the USA and Dancing In the Dark, to the sullen Atlantic City and The River, Springsteen truly does have something for everyone in his catalogue.
Aside from making really great music, there are also a number of collectors items and rarities out in the wild, and we do see them here from time to time. Below are a few highlights we currently have in stock, and you can see our full range at eil.com

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN The ‘Live’ – The Legend Comes Alive (Super rare 1986 Japanese Special DJ Copy 10-track promotional-only LP sampler with custom labels, unique sepia tinged Bruce portrait pasted sleeve with release details on the back for the Japanese market. Both sleeve and label list the first three songs on the B-side in the incorrect order, this copy also includes a one page correction sheet. The sleeve displays just a little light general wear and the vinyl appears in near ‘as new’ condition. Extremely rare & increasingly hard to find in such condition! XDAP-93156).
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Hungry Heart (Scarce 1980 Japanese CBS Sony white label promo sample 2-track 7″ vinyl single, also including Held Up Without A Gun. This original pressing is issued with its WITHDRAWN colour picture insert of a close-up portrait of Bruce – subsequentlyreplaced with the more common ‘boardwalk’ sleeve. Allegedly Bruce was not happy with the photograph to be used, hence it was pulled at his request. The insert displays minimal wear with some light foxing mostly on the back, whilst the vinyl looks barely played. An outstanding example and the first we have seen in five years! 07SP511).
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle (Rare 1974 Japanese first press 7-track LP, including some of The Boss’ finest work with tracks such as 4th Of July & the anthemic Rosalita, issued in the withdrawn pastedpicture sleeve which features a black & white band photograph on the back [later replaced with a colour one], complete with fold-out Japanese/lyric insert & obi-strip. The sleeve & obi both displays minimal wear whilst the vinyl has only a fewlight signs of play SOPL-239).
